I am a homemaker in every sense of the word. I have four children that are grown, married and so far, have given me five awesome grandchildren. I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom during all the years they were growing up, for which I am very thankful. I am an oil painter, though this is a skill I only began to develop about 6 years ago. I came from a long line of artists or artisans. My mom has had her hand in everything from painting to designing jewelry. My grandmother was the same way and once had a business that she called Permanent Posies. She made wax flower arrangements. I decided to borrow the name for my blog and I don’t think she would have minded.
Presently, my husband and I are business owners. He does all the selling and business related things and I am his support staff/computer geek/account manager/travel coordinator/utility specialist/shopper/did I say shopper?/housekeeper/cook/laundress and general companion. Our family manufactures and sales a roadbase stabilizer used in road construction and my husband is striving to make it the top company in that industry in the world. I believe, he along with his son-in-law, brother and father, will do just that. By the way, he and I met in college and have been married every since. I guess I am his number one fan.
My life is rich and full of love and family. I am unorganized, passionate (good word for emotional), right-brained and creative (undisciplined)…..compassionate, loyal…..I love people of all walks of life. I like eccentric people and I like normal people. I guess I have rarely met a person that I didn’t like. Most of all, I love the Lord my God and His Son, Jesus Christ. I am terribly flawed but I know that God loves me anyway. That is a grand thing to believe.
I hope you enjoy delving into my world of creative chaos. Leave me a comment and a link, and I will delve into your world as well.
How do you like my new button? It is a painting of my grandmother, painted by my Uncle Mike in the 1930′s.
